Abstract [en]

Thesis in Musicology and Artistic Practice by Anders Soldh. Part of the work for the master’s degree. Studies from School of Music, Theatre and Art, University of Örebro, 2007. Available from School of Music, Theatre and Art, Örebro University, SE-701 82 Örebro, Sweden. Original in Swedish.

This essay in musicology describes the work concerning the composition of an orchestral piece and the different strategies and approaches which are essential in order to be in control of your work and to make a piece of music sound the way you want it to. It consists of two different parts:

1) The theory part: This first part describes the importance of planning. This planning consists of how to determinate duration, number of themes, form and orchestration in a piece of music. It also brings up the importance of time management.Further, it deals with problems you might find in the collaboration with a soloist and orchestra. In the orchestral section of this part of the essay, the different instruments and their families are brought up. Finally, the theory section talks about the role and importance of the audience.

2) The practical part: This second part (from chapter 7), which includes the score of the piece ”Medvind”, consists of a complete analysis of the music. This analysis shows how the subjects spoken of the theory part are dealt with in practice when writing a piece of music. Included in this part is also a recording of the piece played by ”Svenska Kammarorkestern” with Mats Norrefalk as soloist.
